US tells Greece: Cooperate with EU, meet obligations

The United States told Greece through its ambassador on Friday to work cooperatively with its European colleagues and the International Monetary Fund, and that Athens needed to push ahead with reforms.

“Greece should continue to make administrative and structural reforms and exercise fiscal prudence,” the embassy said in a statement.

“At the same time, in the view of the United States, Greece must make reforms that make foreign investment in Greece more attractive so the country can meet its international obligations and return to prosperity,” the statement added.

US Ambassador to Greece David D. Pearce earlier met Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and senior ministers from the recently elected leftist government.
